Summer is right around the corner. What are your plans for the summer? What are some of your favorite memories? How has your RA changed how you enjoy your summer, if at all?

I used to have a very active lifestyle, but since I found out I've got RA, no more surfing no more beach volleyball. Still love to swim and snorkel and free dive! Doesn't effect my joints. I found swimming to be an excellent alternative. I'm training to be able to hold my breath so I can go underwater deeper and/or longer. I suggest swimming or diving to everyone out there, with RA.

I'm glad you're able to still embrace the alternatives, Cambo! Sounds like you live in an area when you can indulge (most of) your passions.
